Roasted Beetoroot Salad with Citris and Tarragon Cashew Cheese 

Roasted Beetoroot Salad with Citris and Tarragon Cashew Cheese 

This sumblime salad is restaurant standard fancy - but then it would be seeing as it was created by chef Chad Sarno for his former raw food restaurant Saf. This is a great pal impressing summer dinner party starter - or whatever treat yourself and make it for yourself. Of the dish Chad says, "Slow roasting the baby beets gives them a deep sweetness that balances the earthiness. Watercress brings sharpness and bite. Cashew cream contributes richness. Sherry vinegar has the spark (but we're swapping for balsamic vinegar to be inclusive). Bread crisps give it crunch. Between the textures and flavors—and even the colors—this sexy dish just hits all the buttons." We love the fact Chad describes a salad as sexy! Warning - this salad uses A LOT of ingredients! But so worth it.

There’s also an element of theatricality to the cauliflower being served as a roasted centerpiece, with its burnt smoky edges and incredible Fibonacci marbling.” Yeah he said Fibonacci. We googled it to. But anyways – this tastes amazing and only takes 30 minutes to make. Enjoy.
